What an amazing shakedown cruise/rendezvous to Roche Harbor we experienced this past weekend! Nineteen boats in all attended and over 30 BYC families represented! We had sun all weekend and it actually warmed up to the 60’s some of the time. That wonderful weather motivated us to get out on the water with other BYC members, dust off the cobwebs on our boats and fire up those engines! The whole gang enjoyed great fun meeting new people, grubbing down on a fabulous Happy Hour dinner on Friday, a delicious spread of potluck favorites along with Jim and Angie’s BBQ Ribs on Saturday evening and a tasty brunch on Sunday morning! The 1st ever Bocce Ball Tournament was a blast with over 2 dozen people participating. The 1st place team winners were Mark Schmerler and Rozlynne Rush and 2nd place team winners were Al and Karen Calary! The weather was ideal for walks and hiking on the island and for soaking up some much needed sunshine on the peaceful docks on our boats!
A special thank you to my co-host Wendy Bevan for you nice nautical table decorations for our BBQ dinner and to all the folks who helped with cooking and cleanup over the weekend, especially the Jumanji crew Keith and Donna Olsen, Susan Henderson, Gen Angle(Angie’s sister) and Dan and Ariane Ringler! With the help of everyone who pitched in, our 1st cruise of the year was a huge success!
